Parish Planning Study Survey

Greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus!

I am writing you because the parish needs your assistance and input.  Our Saint Teresa of Calcutta family is moving forward with a Planning Study to examine any underlying concerns and questions as we prepare for our capital campaign in 2017. This campaign is to address the needs parishioners identified last year in our five year planning process, namely the need for additional classrooms, offices and hall space as well as reducing our parish debt.

Such an effort requires thoughtful discussion to ensure success.  I need to hear from all parishioners and your input is essential.  I personally invite you to complete this online survey.  Your thoughts will help us create a plan of action.  Together our combined insights and wisdom can guide our decisions for the future.

To assist us, the parish has retained Guidance In Giving, Inc., a professional Catholic development organization to work with our staff coordinating the study.  Based on comments from all parishioners, the firm will guide us in formulating a plan of action and will make recommendations regarding our next steps in implementing a successful capital campaign.  Please note: I will not view your individual responses!  This is your opportunity to share freely any concerns or questions you have. I will receive a summary report that does not include the names of individuals who provide their comments. What matters most is that we truly hear from the entire Saint Teresa of Calcutta Parish family.

Below is a link to the proposed building plans the Planning Study survey. Please complete the Survey no later than “Survey Weekend,” October 8th and 9th.  The questions in the study are intended to assist the parish in obtaining an accurate view of the feelings, opinions and financial support of our parishioners toward the capital campaign.  Please understand that this is not a formal solicitation. The campaign will not begin until the results of the study have been reviewed and we are confident in our ability to move forward.

Thank you for your time as we move forward with the plans for our parish.  Please keep this study in your prayers.  If you have any questions, please contact me directly for more information.

Sincerely yours in Christ,

Fr. Frank Schuster
